a lofty goal

Hi there. 

I'm happy today. 

My goal is to stay happy all week. This is a lofty goal for a girl like me. A girl with a full nest and much flitting to get done.

Here's some things that tend to make me a happy bird:

* clean sheets * pebble ice and Nehi peach soda * paint on my hands * milky baby breath * nautical antiquities *  old pawn jewelry * vintage Asian art  * petrichor* * pantone color books * accordion music * striped tights * peonies * cowboy boots * belly laughs *

I recently did this collage.  It's called "The Date".  I used Margie Romney-Aslett's new papers.  They will be available in stores mid-March. You can get a sneak peak of her entire line at CHA this weekend. If you are going, pop by her booth and say hi.

It is an original piece. 24"X 24" and one and a quarter inch deep. It is available to purchase here.  I think it would go great in a little girl's room.

Smartly dressed mice? That makes me happy too.

* petrichor- n. (pronounced /ˈpɛtrɨkər/; from Greek petros "stone" + ichor the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology) is the name of the scent of rain on dry earth

The random number picker chose comment #44 who happens to be Leslie from Texas. I happen to know Leslie and I know that she has a delightful little blog where she features lovely things almost everyday.  

And now, my dear netternuts, raise your glass to a happy week. If I can do it, so can you.

My goodness, that is ADORABLE. If only I had a little girls room to put that in.

petrichor is one of my very favorite things, too . . . and I probably smell it more than you do, living in the desert like I do . . . but I didn't know there was a name for it.
I just get smarter by the day--thanks for that nugget.
